WUBI doesn't work with Windows 8, and s not recommended anymore (what version of Ubuntu did you install with it anyway? I don't think it's available in the current versions), so don't use that, especially if you want to erase all other OS's (like windows) and leave only Ubuntu. Here's the Ubuntu.com "Download Ubuntu Desktop" page, that has some guides on ...
Ofcourse it is too late but helpfull for new commer Install 14.04 Ubnatu via Wubi in windows 8. I have done these steps: download the iso from ubantu site. mount it in a virtaul drive in windows and copy all files in a drives folder. From the folder click the exe to run Wubi setup. Which runs same as 10.x Ubantu. In 5 to 10 min it ask to restart, I have a ...
This looks like a Wubi install, and likely you had NTFS filesystem corruption, perhaps due to a hard shutdown? or some other crash. In any event, running boot-repair on Wubi installs is not a good idea... because it's not written by someone familiar with how Wubi works. What you should do on a Wubi install is first run chkdsk from Windows, because the host ...
You can run file system integrity checks on the host partition (NTFS) as well as on the root.disk (ext3/4). You should always run it in this order, because the root.disk is also a file and if it is corrupt, trying to fsck it won't help and may in fact damage it further.** So, when I am concerned due to some event, for example a hardware crash that Alt+SysRq ...
The "integrity" of an installation is ambiguous. To clarify, I assume you mean "Is the filesystem in a clean state?" This is hard to test when your installation is Wubi - you can't easily identify the Wubi file system from a Live environment, for example, as the Wubi file system is actually just stored on Windows itself, as a file container, and not really ...
You can use the minimal installation ISO instead. They are about 36MB. The installation will then download files as needed during installation. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD
Ubuntu's grub can't make an entry for Windows and that's why grub only boots Ubuntu use the following commands: sudo update-grub sudo reboot
Ordinarily boot repair solves issues of simple grub issues. That report you posted revealed a problem I've never seen before, or even heard mention of. I refer to line 731 which reads, "Partition 4 does not start on physical sector boundary." The good news is that theoretically this may be something you can fix by yourself using gparted. It may be as ...
this is based on my experience. Wubi will be useful if you have a good internet connection since it downloads a selected ubuntu environment during installation. On the other hand, Wubi will be useless if your internet connection is less than 1 Mb/s since the download process would take time
From the error message you have quoted, I can understand that few of the files required for the Wubi installer are missing. That's the reason 404 error message pops up. Check the link here with similar issue which might be helpful.
